The Blue Marlin is a joke! The manager is rude! No coffee or anything for the guests, really! For the cost of the room the least they could provide is coffee. The rooms are dingy looking and bedding needs updated along with the air conditioning, really! I will never stay there again nor recommend that place to anyone I know! And I do work with Doctors and fellow nurses!

Two blocks from the beach. That's the ONLY good thing. Room was DISGUSTING and falling apart. Front desk person initially refused to check us in because we didn't have the 'right numbers' on our credit card. He said someone could have stolen it and made the reservation in my name without me knowing. He had my driver's license so I asked him if it someone did that, why would the credit card name match my driver's license? He just kept saying he was doing me a big favor by accepting my reservation and letting me pay. WHAT? The tv in the room didn't work and the front desk person told us to 'come back later' when we asked about getting it working. Beds had sand in them and the floor was covered with so much sand that we bought a broom! Toilet actually moved when you sat down. Shower was clogged and dirty. Peeling paint and questionable stains on the wall. Door and frame weren't flush and you could see outside when it was shut. Even with the 'do not disturb' sign on the door, housekeeper banged on the door 3 times and tried to open it even after we said we didn't want anything! Thankfully we had the chain locked. When we went out later, another housekeeper told us to go back in and give her our full trash and she gave us clean bags to change the trash cans!!! Then she directed us to put the full trash bags in their giant trash bins when we tried to give it to her. 10/10 would NEVER stay here again even if it was free!!!!!! Felt like I needed a bleach shower after this trip.

The property is a 3 minute walk to the beach. The staff is VERY nice and accommodating! The beds are very comfortable and clean. We've stayed here several times and will be back!

Nice and decent

Pros: Location, Price, quietness
Cons: cleaniness
Location: Near food and stores and strip
The hotel was very quiet and I had a view of the ocean from my room. The bed was comfortable but the covers were too thin. I loved that the room had a nice TV and also a nice desk and microwave and fridge. The bathroom was well stocked but could have been cleaner and the tube drained very slow. Overall, nice hotel and will use again.

Decent hotel. A block from the beach.

They let us park on site so we could go to the beach even though it wasn't time to check in. They even let us use the facilities to change into our suits!
